Brand Story

Jessica Vartoughian is a manicurist with a vision - beautiful, natural nails for every women.

Having opened the world's first nail-only clinic on Sunset Boulevard and found recognition with celebrity clients and beauty editors, Jessica recognised that nails (similar to skin and hair) need to be treated with prescriptive treatments according to their type.

Starting with a base coat for every nail type, the range includes over 200 vitamin enriched Custom Colours, extra glossy, fast drying top coats, hand and cuticle care plus many other essentials to help maintain the health of the natural nail.

Q & As

Rated 5 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by First time buy but great result Never used this before but great for my nails as brittle and tired. Have a hard life with country farm life, and this produce brought them back to be a city lady. 09 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Magic in a bottle Having had gel nail varnish applied for over a year, my nails were peeling and very weak underneath. So bought this product and my nails are no longer peeling, are growing and actually very strong. I am now on my second bottle to ensure that they continue this way. 01 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works well I've used this for a few years now and find it prevents split nails. I combine it with Top Priority also by Jessica. Unfortunately it is rare to find these in stock. 07 August 2015
